The ASHTRANS 2013 conference will be held in Copenhagen, Denmark on 2-3 September, 2013. ASHTRANS is the international meeting platform for Byproducts logistic and trading.
Ashes mainly from coal combustion are commercially traded commodities. With the transition in Europe towards more renewable energy supply, the need for traders, suppliers, users, shippers, brokers and haulers, to meet and exchange ideas related to logistics and find commercial arrangements become even more pronounced. Therefore the ASHTRANS conference is intended as a platform for commercial meetings to exchange views and to meet with potential commercial partners for setting up deals or just to evaluate new possibilities.
The conference is arranged to facilitate just that and at the same time offers presentations about market relevant issues. Therefore the conference is of commercial interest for producers and users of all byproducts from the energy industry as well as for the Building material industry and the transportation industry. The same interest applies to traders of these products and those who engage in any kind of transportation and logistic solutions related to the products of interest. The conference may also be relevant for certifying bodies, authorities and environmental interested parties, as well as deposition plant companies.
